The SIS Advisory Council on Diversity & Inclusion was created in 2012 for members of the SIS community to provide input and feedback about SIS diversity & inclusion initiatives.
The Advisory Council engages administrators, faculty, staff, and students to ensure that the design of these initiatives is informed by a range of experiences, perspectives and functional areas within the school. The goal of this holistic, community approach is to not only identify and serve needs in the SIS community, but also to build an increasingly inclusive school culture.
The Advisory Council is chaired by Dean James Goldgeier and Rebecca Davis, Director of SIS Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives.
